For a guy who won 209 matches in his prep wrestling career, Lisbon’s Carter Happel can recall the details of many vividly.

Like the four state championships he won — becoming only the 25th wrestler in Iowa to achieve the feat — and the high-intensity duals with rival Alburnett.

Watch the video above as Happel recalls some of his biggest wins, including what led to him shushing the Alburnett crowd in a win this past season.

The University of Iowa commit is an Athlete of the Year finalist — meet the others here and look for the winner Sunday.
